The seedings have been set for the annual Jackson County Basketball Tournament.

The Skyline girls and the Section boys are the tops seeds for the varsity divisions of the 2022 Jackson County Tournament, which is Jan. 17-22 at Section High School.

It’s the second time Skyline, which has been the county runner-up the past six seasons, has been the varsity girls tournament’s No. 1 seed (1994).

Coach Ronnie McCarver’s team, which is ranked the defending Class 1A state champion and is currently ranked No. 1 in Class 1A, is 4-0 against county teams this season, including a 55-53 overtime win over 2A No. 1-ranked and defending 2A state champion Pisgah back in November.

Pisgah, which was won seven straight county championships, is the No. 2 seed in the varsity girls division. 

Skyline and Pisgah both receive quarterfinal round byes. Skyline will play either fourth-seeded North Jackson or fifth-seeded North Sand Mountain in the semifinals while Pisgah plays either third-seeded Section or sixth-seeded Woodville in the semifinals.

Meanwhile, Section is the top seed in the varsity boys division for the first time since the 2017-18 season.
